Ingham (Qld) Hospital Admission Registers

Ingham Hospital admission registers are very useful for genealogy and family history. Though not all were completed in full, the registers (at Qld State Archives) have space for these details (which, if supplied by the patient, may be more accurate than those on a death certificate):

name;  date admitted;  age;  birthplace;  occupation;  religion;  ship of arrival;  how long in colony;  place of residencemarital status;  place of marriage, at what age, and name of spouse;  names and ages of children living;  number and sex of children deceasedfather's name and occupationfather's present residence if living (or 'father dead');  mother's maiden name;  disease or reason for admission;  date of discharge or date and cause of death;  sometimes additional remarks (medical history, social circumstances etc.)

Note the provision for ship of arrival, place of residence, marital status, and father's present residence - details not found on a Qld death certificate. A hospital register is sometimes the only surviving source of information about immigration.

Names below are from my index to the register for 20 Aug 1889 to 22 May 1890.

Explanation of names below:

  • Date range:  20 Aug 1889 - 22 May 1890.
  • Scroll through the list. Many names were spelled incorrectly in the registers.
  • '...' means that no surname was stated, or the name was illegible.
  • A question mark means handwriting was difficult to decipher, and the spelling is in doubt.
  • 'Ab' = Aboriginal or part Aboriginal.
  • Names beginning with 'Mc' precede other 'M' surnames.
  • Apostrophes have been removed from names such as O'NEILL.
  • If there is more than one entry for a name, it could mean that the same person is mentioned more than once, or that there were several people with the same name. The only way to find out is to consult the original source. Obtain copies of all such entries, as some may be more detailed or more accurate than others.

Other suggestions

Copying service. Allow several weeks for a reply (I am often away for family reasons).

If the same name is listed twice, that is two entries. Order ALL entries for the name! Often one is incorrect, incomplete or illegible but another gives full and accurate details. As a professional genealogist, I can provide copies from the original registers. See the price list and payment methods for Ingham Hospital copies.


Other Suggestions

Records for other hospitals, and rules and conditions for patients in the old days.

My other genealogy sites have more advice, and more names from records in archives.
